Ryde Highway patrol stopped the delivery motor scooter rider who later went on to accumulate 385 demerit points and has now fled the country

Australia’s worst food delivery driver has fled the country after racking up hundreds of demerit points and allegedly stealing a motorbike.

NSW Police issued an arrest warrant for the French national, 23, who was hit with an extraordinary 385 demerit points while delivering for Hungry Panda and other services.

But the manhunt could be futile after police told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday that by the time the warrant was issued on June 19, the Frenchman was long gone.

‘Officers attached to Traffic and Highway Patrol command have been conducting inquiries into the whereabouts of a 23-year-old man and on Friday 7 June 2024, attended an address in Zetland,’ police said.

‘However, he was unable to be located and subsequent inquiries revealed the man had left Australia on Thursday 6 June 2024.’ 

The driver’s appalling record – accrued over about just six months in Australia – also extended to him renting a black Yamaha scooter from City Car King at Alexandria, Sydney on March 21 – and allegedly not returning it, The Daily Telegraph reported earlier. 

The Frenchman destroyed the bike’s $400 tracker so he could keep the scooter without being found while working for various food delivery companies.

The man’s shocking driving record was discovered after NSW Police highway patrol officers applied to Transport NSW for his full record due to his continual offending.

It was while riding the Yamaha that the Frenchman received hundreds of demerit points, police said.

The rider was convicted of larceny and destroying property in June, but it was handed down without him present after he failed to turn up to court on multiple occasions. 

The motorbike rider always produced his international licence to police when they pulled him over.

Police said they were not in charge of the demerit system and it was Transport NSW’s responsibility, which also maintains point tallies.

A Transport for NSW spokesman said it was ‘actively managing the case’ with both the police and Revenue NSW.

Astonishingly, the bike theft is not the only one the Sydney business has had to deal with.

A staff member said they didn’t remember the Frenchman renting the scooter because they ‘have about 50 of these cases where people steal bikes’.

‘They come in here, some people don’t even try and rent, they just steal a bike and go … we give all the information to police,’ the staff member said.
